Dinghy Sailing opportunity for anyone with Stage 1 or RYA 1 and 2 upwards 14th July 2018

Hemel Hempstead Scouts Sailing Day Saturday 14th July 2018

A day dinghy sailing at the ESSA Water Activities Centre, Nazeing, Essex (https://essa.org.uk/).

The day will be focussed on improving sailing skills and an introduction to racing. It will be open to any Cub, Scout or Explorer who has completed their Stage 1 or 2 Sailing activity badge or Stage 1 or 2 RYA youth sailing award.

Minibus transport will be provided and that is included in the total cost. We will leave Hemel Hempstead at 9am and aim to return for 5pm.

Drinks and snacks will be provided as there is no shop on the site. Participants will need to bring their own packed lunch.

We will be using ESSA’s boats and all safety equipment. Please note that their rules state that young people at the centre are required to wear helmets when dinghy sailing. Participants will need their own personal clothing and waterproofs.

ESSA charge £21 per young person per day. The total cost will therefore be £27.50.

Bookings will be via the Hemel Hempstead Scout website in the usual way for our sailing activities . Once a booking and payment has been made full details and permission forms will be sent out which must be returned before the booking is confirmed.
